The Tippmann 98 Custom is a very good marker for beginners and veterans alike. It is very powerful for a gun it's size and is excellent for woodsball. It is an okay speedball gun but if you want to use it for speedball I recommend getting a double trigger and a longer barrel. I have used this gun for most of my paintball career and have not felt the need or want to get a new gun. This is my favorite marker I have ever used and I have tested most of the guns on the market at this time.
I recommend this gun to anyone who plays paintball because it is small, powerful, and extremely reliable.
